Northfield Park Race 13 (Super Hi-5)
Date: 11/14/2018 Carryover: $0 Guarantee: $10,000
Ticket: 9/1,2,4/1,2,4/ALL/ALL – Cost: $32.00 ($.20 base)
Yesterday’s Recap – We went two-for-four in a Pick 4 that was pretty formful, but paid very well for those who had it. The Pick 4 of 5/2/2/1 returned $359.80.
Race 13: #9 YIPPITY HANOVER draws a hair tough tonight in the second tier, but there is speed on the inside which could actually benefit her. She gets a big driver change this week to Wrenn which could also make the difference.
#1 GIUSEPPE MOLLUSCA drops in class and draws the rail this week with Ebersole in the sulky. He has a little bit of contentious early speed which makes him a valid contender.
#2 NOBETTORPLACETOBE was second in the slop against this class two starts back. When he moved up in class, he got a good trip and was a lot better than the line shows. Given another chance off the rail this time could make him tough to beat.
#4 SOUTHWIND WHISKI has hit the board (Hi-5) in five of his last five starts and that is a hard statistic to ignore. He has speed and gets a key driver change to Merriman.
We will use ALL/ALL in the last part to tri to play this like a trifecta and score.
